Description

Vintage Welsh wool tapestry cushion and feather pad.
This gorgeous cushion in a lovely soft colour palette is made from a vintage Welsh wool tapestry weave, and filled with a plump feather cushion.
Commonly called Welsh tapestry, it's not really tapestry at all, but two layers intertwined together during the weaving process to create this amazingly dense, and incredibly warm cloth. It's more accurate name is double cloth, as the pattern is in reverse on the other side of the fabric as well.
Mid century modern, as well as being cottagey and homely, this design has it all.

The Welsh wool has first been backed onto poly cotton to stop it stretching, and the inside edges bound to prevent them fraying.
The back is made from a baby blue herringbone weave which has also been backed onto poly cotton, and finished with a zig zag stitch inside.
It measures 38 cm by 38 cm which is 15 inches square.
There is a semi-concealed old fashioned metal zip fastening measuring 30 cm.
Inside is snuggling a plump feather cushion pad.
The cushion is finished off with my own embroidered name tag.
This listing is for one cushion only.

I like to reuse where possible. Your cushion will be posted out using clean, recycled packaging.
It will be posted out as Royal Mail signed for 2nd class, which takes about 3 working days and requires a signature on arrival.

Inspiration

Wow, what a beautiful piece of textile to find at a car boot. I’m so pleased that these double weave cloths with their intricate designs and fabulous colour combinations are fashionable once more.
